DFIRL Season 2 Episode 1 Live: The Sextortion Case of Daniel Harris

Today’s guest for the Digital Forensics in Real Life Podcast is Jim Cole, a retired Supervisory Special Agent with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). He shared the case of Daniel Harris—a disgraced former top gun Navy F-18 pilot who sextorted at least 70 child victims around the globe—live on stage at the Magnet User Summit in Nashville.

This episode gets deep into the weeds of digital forensics in an extremely complex case. Jim speaks about best practices for working with digital cameras, some very creative forensic techniques that proved the defendant was perpetrating the crimes despite confusing claims of third party hacking, how he defended his case on the witness stand, and much more.
